VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – August 17 2020 – Bowling Green State University is introducing an app-based parking payment option for an estimated 1,850 short term parking spaces on the University’s main campus.


BGSU parking customers can now utilize the PayByPhone mobile app to pay for one-time parking use. 

“We are excited to introduce the PayByPhone App,” said Tom Kelly, manager of Parking and Shuttle Services at BGSU. “This will simplify short-term parking for all BGSU parking customers, offering a convenient and contactless option that will support our health and safety priorities.” 

Once the PayByPhone app is launched, the motorist enters their parking location, their length of stay and pays. When a parking session expires, the app sends the user a text message prompting them to extend their parking session remotely, saving the need of having to return to their car to feed the meter. 

While faculty, staff and student parking passes provide a lower cost, the PayByPhone parking app will allow for flexibility and convenience in single-use parking.

“Campuses in North America are increasingly adopting the PayByPhone app because it simplifies and modernizes parking for students, faculty and visitors,” said Roamy Valera, PayByPhone CEO. 

PayByPhone is one of the fastest growing mobile payment companies in the world, processing over 125 million transactions annually, totaling more than $550 million USD in payments.
